The beaches of Washington’s Olympic Peninsula tend to be rockier and much colder than those on the East Coast of the United States. But if you enjoy walking along the coast they provide some great opportunities to explore.
During a hike I noticed this piece of bark resting on stones by the side of the trail. I was initially intrigued by the texture and patterns in the bark itself. My first thought was to get a close up of the texture but when I noticed the bark was sitting between two shadows I thought it made for an interesting forest still life.
